_Ye shall not go out in haste, for the Lord will go before you; and the God of Israel will be your rearward_.–ISA. lii. 12. (R. V.).
He that believeth shall not make haste.–ISA. xxviii. 16.

Holy Spirit, Peace divine! Still this restless heart of mine; Speak to calm this tossing sea, Stayed in Thy tranquillity.
S. LONGFELLOW.
In whatever you are called upon to do, endeavor to maintain a calm, collected, and prayerful state of mind. Self-recollection is of great importance. “It is good for a man to quietly wait for the salvation of the Lord.” He who is in what may be called a spiritual hurry, or rather who runs without having evidence of being spiritually sent, makes haste to no purpose.
T. C. UPHAM.
There is great fret and worry in always running after work; it is not good intellectually or spiritually.
ANNIE KEARY.
Whenever we are outwardly excited we should cease to act; but whenever we have a message from the spirit within, we should execute it with calmness. A fine day may excite one to act, but it is much better that we act from the calm spirit in any day, be the outward what it may.
J. P. GREAVES.
